A criminal defense lawyer works very hard to limit consequences a client faces following an arrest. Many Colorado defendants understandably vow never to take risks that would cause them to repeat the legal process. Charges and sentences reflect courts have little sympathy or patience for repeat offenders.
Sentences for Colorado DUI convictions may include jail time, license suspensions or revocation, mandatory substance abuse counseling, an ignition interlock, probation, community service, fines and fees. These are not easy terms for you, your family or an employer to handle. A second DUI can make your legal situation worse.
